La Tête d'Or Zoo
Mo to Su from 06:30 AM to 10:30 PMThis zoological garden in the middle of the Parc de la Tête d'Or on the corner of boulevard des Belges and avenue Verguin is a real home for over 1100 animals. Next to the deer park, visitors of all ages can see wild animals from all over the world, such as elephants and giraffes and in the spring you may be lucky enough to get a glimpse of their babies. A little patience and a stroll in the park will probably reward you with a sighting of a grey heron by the lake, a squirrel on a bench or even a rather bad-tempered Florida turtle (which some people unfortunately drop in the lake!). Admission is free. Hours vary seasonally. Check website for more details.
